    I don’t like corsages on anyone because it reminds me of highschool prom.  I’ve never seen bridesmaids with corsages, usually if they have flowers it’s a bouquet.

    I think it’s good for them to have something to hold, even if it’s not a bouquet, because it might look awkward for them if they don’t know what to do with their hands.

    I think the bouquets just make them stand out a bit more.  And some people like to get corsages for their mom and Future Mother-In-Law to help them ‘pop’ out of the crowd too.  We’re not doing that, but we’re doing bouquets anyhow as since the girls are wearing tea length dresses (their choice) I don’t want them to seem too ‘casual’ looking.

    i like the idea of the corsages, but like another poster mentioned the bouquets make the girls stand out a little bit more which is nice.

    I’ve always like bouquets as a bridesmaid because it gave me something to do with my hands during the ceremony.  Love the idea of corsages though, but I’d probably get a little bridezilla and tell my girls how they needed to hold their hands through the ceremony.  The girls would be able to wear the corsages throughout the reception too, which is nice.

    My Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets are a similar but smaller version of mine!

    I’m not of fan of corsages for anyone, any reason. Plus, boquets give them something to do with their hands, and if they are nervous, its a great way to hide it!

    I’m not a fan of corsages because 1) they never stay in place they are so hard to pin correctly and some end up flopping over if they don’t have a strong enough fabric to pin too.  Which then means pinning it to your bra strap which is a pain. 2) When people go to hug you they get crunched in the middle. 

    I’m a fan of bouqets.  I’ve always taken my bouqets home and put them in a vase and get to look at it for a few more days.

    I’m also not a fan of corsages.  The whole idea of them is weird to me and makes me think of prom, (although I asked my date not to get me one because I didn’t like it then either).

    Bouquets help decorate the table they’re sitting at, or the head table. It seems that you’d save money on a corsage- but you probably aren’t because you will spend it elsewhere.

    If you really want to go that route, how about attaching a corsage to a purse. The purse can be their gift- they have something to hold and you get the flower aspect.

    Or parasols.

    Or balloons.

    i like bouquets because, like bubbly d said, it gives your hands something to do when you’re standing up there in front of everyone.
